Rich Dark Fruitcake

Submitted by: Carol 
This is my mother's very old recipe, at least 60 years old. My mother baked this for my wedding, and it sure is delicious and also a great Christmas cake. This is a very long recipe, but well worth the trouble. You can substitute a cup of drained maraschino cherries for the candied cherries, if you like.

This is designed for people who don't like fruitcake. It is not as sweet or as dry. My husband hated fruitcake until he had mine.

Mom's Fruitcake

Submitted by: Sharon 
This is the fruitcake my mother made from the time I was a little girl. It isn't full of the citrus fruits, and I've never met anyone who didn't like it. Originally submitted to CakeRecipe.com. You can use fruit juice instead of the brandy, if you prefer.
